Literal Literacy Open Swim

The Literal Literary aka Book Title Theme Open Swim is going to be a fun event. Those attending will pull book titles from a hat. Then, without telling anybody your book title, you, must draw a literal representation of your title. Your art will be judge on how speak for itself. Additionally, you can only use ONE word in your drawing. The voting will be done in two rounds, and yield three first place winners.

Phase One: Our normal casting of ballots for best art.

Phase Two. Voters will write down their best guess at your book title. These will then be read aloud with correct guesses counting as points. This will win the category for best communication.

Phase Three. Votes from both rounds will be tallied for the overall winner of the competition.

Prizes will be given out for these three categories as well as for second places – if we have a big stack of prizes. If you have a book that you think will make a great prize, please bring it to the event. Winners will get first pick.

2011’s White Elephant Gift Exchange

Last year you laughed so hard you nearly peed. You remember the terror of 2009. And you’ve been waiting all year for this magical, yet horrifying event. Yes! Once again it’s time for The CLAW’s Annual White Elephant Gift Exchange. Anybody is welcome. What do you need to bring? You don’t need to bring a gift to watch the spectacle. But this might be just the place to get rid of that ‘thing’ you loving aunt gave you last year.

This year the Four Eye Council, with support of the Talons of the CLAW, declare the White Elephant rules as:

1. Gifts, if new, should be less than $10.
2. Once a gift is taken of the table it MUST be unwrapped.
3. A gift can be stolen twice, and then it is locked in.
4. A person cannot steal the same gift twice.
5. You can only get a present if you bring a present.
6. You can bring more than one present.
7. Spare presents number will be awarded though a rock-paper-scissors competition by all who want to participate.

Date: Wednesday, Dec 7th 2011
Location: The Amocat Cafe, 625 Saint Helens Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98402
Time: 7:30 p.m.
